With All My Soul Mini-Reading Challenge Begins

WithAllMySoul_minibanner

I cannot believe that in just one short week from today Rachel Vincent’s WITH ALL MY SOUL, the final book in her Soul Screamers series, will be releasing. As excited as I am for it to hit the shelves – both physical and electronic – I am so very sad that it will officially mark the end of this amazing series.

Yes, I’ve already read it, and I know exactly how things end. But because its release was still forthcoming, it felt very much like maybe, just maybe it wasn’t over. And yes, I am still holding out hope that there will be another novella or two in the series… sort of a “where are they now” story that will give us just another peek into the characters’ lives and into this amazing world the author has so brilliantly crafted over the past few years.

And yes, I’m also sad that this will be my last reading challenge as pertains to the Soul Screamers series. But we’ve reached the final sin and unless “they” determine there are a few more sins of that calibre, it’s likely this series won’t be resurrected. Of course, I am ever hopeful.

The Challenge

I know that WITH ALL MY SOUL won’t be releasing until next week… but when I decided to host this challenge the release date was listed as March 19th. And I decided not to change the date as it’s also very likely that a few readers might have been able to get their hands on it prior to its release. To my knowledge, WITH ALL MY SOUL has not been embargoed.

So…

If you haven’t yet signed up for the reading challenge, CLICK HERE for all the details and to leave your link to sign up.

The giveaway associated with that post has closed, but there is a giveaway for those challenge participants who read WTIH ALL MY SOUL and link their reviews and/or book thoughts posts in the Linky List below.

You have until APRIL 30th, 2013 at 11:59 p.m. Pacific to read it, review it and leave your link to be entered into the giveaway.

There is no minimum or maximum length required for your review. Nor does your review have to be in English. And there is no set format for how you choose to review. However, it has to be clear enough to anyone who reads it that the book has actually been read. I do check out all reviews for challenge participants!

AND, if there are going to be spoilers for the book in your review, PLEASE state that in the Linky List entry below.

That’s it!

Good luck to everyone! While the challenge might not seem that challenging, saying goodbye to a well-loved series and its characters is HARD! So I completely understand those who might have already signed up but just can’t take that next step.

But… this just means that now the author, Rachel Vincent, can create new characters for us to love, hate, angst over, suffer along with. Of course, if you’re like me, and you also have taken that journey with her characters in the Unbound series, you’ll have one more goodbye to say before being able to say hello to her next endeavor.

The Book

With All My Soul

addtogoodreads

What does it mean when your school is voted the most dangerous in America? It’s time to kick some hellion butt…After not really surviving her junior year (does “undead” count as survival?), Kaylee Cavanaugh has vowed to take back her school from the hellions causing all the trouble. She’s going to find a way to turn the incarnations of Avarice, Envy and Vanity against one another in order to protect her friends and finish this war, once and forever.

But then she meets Wrath and understands that she’s closer to the edge than she’s ever been. And when one more person close to her is taken, Kaylee realizes she can’t save everyone she loves without risking everything she has….

And yes… those are tears… I’m just so sad this series is ending that I cried on my blog.

    Eeep, just one more week left and I can finally read WAMS! I really hope I could’ve left a link to my review now, but I guess I’ll just have to be patient. 😉 But yes indeed, luckily Oath Bound releases next month! At least I won’t go through Rachel Vincent withdrawal just yet. I’m really eagerly counting down the days for the last books in both her series. (But oh gosh, the wait for RV’s next book is gonna kill me!)

    And wow, all the prizes for participating in this challenge is amazing! All the more added incentive to take the plunge and read WAMS ASAP (and say goodbye to the SS world…)

  2. Can’t wait to read With All My Soul, although I’m really not ready to say goodbye, so I might postpone reading it until halfway through April 😉

  3. I am so sad the series is ending! I can’t wait until next week to be able to read WAMS.

  4. So terrified!!!!
    SCARED!!!
    SAD!!!!!
    T_T

    BUT…
    Excited 😀

I wanted to say so much, but I still can’t quite believe we won’t have more SS books… hopefully I did WAMS justice, because it was so good. 😀 Please enter me for the Unbound series giveaway, I haven’t started that series yet, so I’d love the chance to read Blood Bound.

    Phew, I thought I wasn’t going to make it! My copy took forever to arrive and when it finally did I was buried in a mountain load of uni work.
